My Blog List

I've been having a lovely weekend. Night out with friends in the pub on Friday, and to the cinema with my son to see 'Lincoln' yesterday. And, some more retro baking in the shape of these jammy dodgers. I spotted the recipe for these in Good Housekeeping and had to try them. They are very, very good indeed. Light and crispy on the outside. Raspberry jam in the centre (Aldi's raspberry conserve is best). I had to cordon off a few biscuits for photography so the family didn't pounce on the whole tin.

I've also finished my doll's cot quilt. If you don't look too closely at my stitching, it's quite sweet.

I so enjoyed making this. Instead of wadding, I used an old wool blanket that I've been cutting up for various  projects, and I neatened the edges with red bias binding. I haven't actually quilted it with lines of stitching as I didn't want to ruin it by making a mistake, but I think that will be my next step.


  1. Hello:

    Oooooo Jammy absolutely wonderful! They look exceedingly good and, we are certain, taste delicious. Far better than those awfully glutinous concoctions which we seem to remember glued our teeth together as children!!!

    We cannot sew for toffee so your quilt looks amazing to us....but it would be the stuffed dog which we would steal!!!

    1. The 1970s jammy dodger had impossibly bright red jam in the middle which once had a hyperactivity warning on it, I seem to recall!
      I am very glad that you appreciate the stuffed dog. He's a favourite.

  2. Sounds like a perfect weekend.
